Certified Agile Project Manager

CMPW 8075

Whether in government or private industry, project managers face a huge challenge when confronted with continually changing requirements. How can you plan when the things keep changing? Traditional project management approaches suggest that we take a snapshot of the requirements as a baseline, and then use change control in an attempt to minimize the impact of any shifting requirements. Sometimes, however, these changes are a reality that the project sponsor has to accommodate. The new Agile Project Management methods help deal with these situations.

Participants in this 3-day session will learn the techniques of Agile Project Management through simulations and examples from real-world projects that used these methods to control changing requirements.

The Project Management Association of Canada offers an entry-level certification in agile project management called the “Certified Agile Project Manager.” Those who are awarded this certificate have the right to use the postnomial “Cert.APM” for as long as their certification remains current.”

Learning objectives

To provide experienced project managers with advanced understanding of the principles and techniques of agile project management, so that they will be able to identify situations where agile techniques may add value and begin to apply the techniques to reduce overall project risk on high change projects.

Topics covered include:

  • The Evolution of Systems Development Lifecycles (SDLCs)
  • Iterative and Incremental Development
  • The Agile Philosophy
  • Agile Team and Project Characteristics
  • Scrum Overview
  • Lean Development Overview
  • Feature-Driven Development Overview
  • Extreme Programming Overview
  • Agile Requirements Management
  • Agile Documentation
  • Agile Planning & Estimating
  • Agile Change Management
  • Negotiating with Stakeholders
  • Metrics and Project Control
  • Test-Driven Development
  • PMI-ACP Examination Tips
Prerequisite

Although there is no formal pre-requisite for this course, it is assumed that participants already have some training or experience in project management.  This couse does not teach the fundamentals of project management; rather, it explains how agile practices are different from more conventional practices -- it does not teach the conventional practices.  If applicants already have their CAPM, PMP or CPMA (IPMA Level-D), then they have more than demonstrated their basic understanding of project management and would be ready to take this course. For those with no prior project management knowledge or experience, Procept's 3-day Project Scheduling Essentials course (or equivalent) would provide suitable preperatory training.

Materials

You will receive the course binder containing course handouts and presentations and a copy of Kevin Aguanno's best-selling book Managing Agile Projects.
